This look is definitely my “everyday”. Black skinnies, an oversized knit top and some boots. Always comfy, always cute. And sleeveless knits are ideal this time of year when the sun is still warm but that air’s got some bite. Gotta love a San Diego winter :) Below are some other knit tops I’m loving.
TGIF you guys. Can you believe it’s DECEMBER already!!? Christmas is creeping up on us real quick! The best time of year. xx
Sam and I were lucky enough to sneak away this weekend for an anniversary staycation on Coronado Island. No babe, just us. We’ve been so caught up in the new shop and everything surrounding it that we’ve had little time for “us”. We’ve realized more and more that getaways like this (even for a day) are so vital for our relationship…and sanity! I’m coming back to work and reality today feeling really refreshed and inspired!
And guess what! It’s finally sweater weather! (cue ‘happy dance’) This leopard number by Mink Pink is the coziest thing i’ve ever owned. And paired with my new Dittos jeans…they are both sure to get a lot of wear this winter. The holidays are creeping up on us quick you guys!
I’ve never been more content looking like a woolly mammoth. This shaggy coat by Black Swan is so perfect for winter. San Diego winter, not so much….which is why I think I need to take a trip to NY. I could think up about a thousand excuses to visit NY, but this is a pretty good one ;)
This weekend was pretty epic. We celebrated the launch of Lone Flag with a big bash with friends and family and supporters. It was so cool to see so many people come out to celebrate with us and encourage us. I know Sam is right at home there and I love to see him so passionate about work! It’s definitely been a huge leap for us in almost all areas of our lives, but it’s really fulfilling to finally have our doors open for business! Our online store is set to launch really soon as well, so I’ll keep you posted on that too! Ladies, it’ll be a great place to buy your guy a Christmas gift! It’s chalk full of “man stuff”. (Trust me, I know how hard they are to shop for!!) xx
I teamed up with the wonderful ladies over at 31 Bits to join in on the launch of their brand new holiday collection, Give with Glam. Each item in the collection uses beads rolled out of recycled paper, which are then coated in holiday shades of glitter. And what’s even more special is that all of these pieces are handmade by women in Uganda, providing them with jobs and education to get out of poverty! Such a cool gift to give this holiday season.
Speaking of holiday season, how is it that time of year already!? This season will be an interesting one for us as new shop owners! As much as I generally try to avoid the crowds, we are crossing our fingers that the Lone Flag will be bustling! We opened our doors on Friday and it’s been so cool to meet new people and see the response from customers. This Ace & Jig dress I am wearing is actually available now in store….(if you are interested, we ship! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability). The online store should be up and running very soon! I’ve been a busy bee getting it ready! Can’t wait to share with you guys.
And if you live in San Diego, we are having a LAUNCH PARTY this Friday, the 8th, from 7-11 pm at the shop. I’d love to meet you!!
Ascot Friday can do no wrong. She recently teamed up with Matisse footwear for a limited collection of shoes….and these Soho Boots are my fave! The heel is the perfect height and the suede has just the right amount of fade. I paired them with a casual floral dress by Tallow and a wool hat. I apologize in advance for all the wool hats you will see on me this fall. I can’t keep them off my head and I keep collecting more! Here is a round up of current favorites:
